Sanekata Shū 279

At about the time I was made Governor of Michinoku, and was about to withdraw from court, as the pine torches were late in being lit, Middle Captain Michinobu (with Sanekata) said:

松まつほどぞ久しかりける

matu matu Fodo zo
Fisasikarikeru
Awaiting, our pining time
Has been long, indeed…

And Kodaigimi:

みちのくにほど遠ければ武隈の

mitinoku ni
Fodo towokereba
takekuma no
For Michinoku
Is faraway as
The pine of Takekuma!
